be a mushroom cloud. and that's not true. there was relationship between the iraqi government and the people who attacked us on 9/11. and yet, there's the republican presidential nominee, the last one to run, saying actually the iraq war was a war of liberation. at the republican convention this year, when they picked that nominee, the speech was given by the national security adviser during the iraq war, the one who said the smoking gun would be a mushroom cloud, who describe that war in her speech that night at the convention as a hard hard decision to keep us from being attacked again. ten years later it is hard to come to terms with the fact we went to war based on something the president told us that was not true. there is nothing that can bring back the more than 4400 american troops who died in that war, the more than 30,000 american troops wounded will not be made whole. we cannot bring them back. we cannot heal their injuries retroactively. and george bush and dick cheney and condoleezza rice are still around. in terms of how we get right with this as a country, the accountability can't

to build one. both agree it will take another year to build nuclear weapons once the government in iran decides to go in that direction. so i've got good hope now, new hope on a number of grounds, one, the two countries are in agreement. two, this means that they will see the united states ready to strike should they decide to build a nuclear bomb. why? because there's no reason for this trip to israel this week unless obama was ready to do just that. they pounded out a serious agreement between the two courts, the u.s. and israel. the people of the united states are not the obama audience. the best result is over the other side, over in tehran. they get to see how serious we are. they build a weapon, we come at them. if they know that now, it could change everything. >>> and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us.

with netanyahu and the new government and that, that new start, i don't like the word reset. but that new relationship begins this week. >> but at the same time, tommy, when the president was asked by israeli television about his relationship with netanyahu, he described it as business-like. he didn't say my good friend, he didn't try to sugar-coat it, frankly. i think anyone who has seen the pictures of them together over the years knows it's not a cozy relationship. >> well you know -- >> it's a strategic alliance. >> right. aaron can tell you, bebe netanyahu is not a warm and fuzzy guy, i don't think he needs to be. they've got be a lot done together. they've spent more time one-on-one the president has with almost any other leader. but if you look at the record of us supporting israeli security, we're talking $3 billion a year to help them maintain a military presence in the region, hundreds more to fund an iron dome defense system to protect israelis from rockets coming out of hamas or southern lebanon. so they're in lock step on a number of key issues there have been these dust ups
the republicans miss is that even rich people need government. even if it is just to build the runways for their golf stream jets. it is not a case of charity. we're all in this together. this is the essential message that barack obama ran on with robert and ran on again in his re-election campaign. the republicans don't get that basic concept. even when they're talking about government programs, they're talking about them as charity. they're not charity. >> steve schmidt we're out of time on this segment, need a quick word before you go. your reaction to cpac? >> i said a couple weeks ago, it has become the star wars bar scene of the conservative movement. it was certainly that and more as we look at this. the good news for republicans is that group's power is mostly illusory. they're a group that will make a lot of noise, it will be incumbent on our serious candidates to call out the excesses of some of the people at cpac to be taken seriously by the middle of the country. >> robert gibbs, steve schmidt, howard fineman, thank you for joining me tonight. >>> coming up, a new poll show
career. >> the favorite thing in the accounting discussion is compare the government to a family, saying you couldn't -- well, families do run debt, they cannot afford to buy their houses for cash, so they have a thing called a mortgage, which is the national debt of the family in effect. they try to oversimplify everything in this, but is there some break through in this point of republicans saying you know what, the debt isn't such a serious problem? >> there's no break through. i think it is a big deal that john boehner and others can't uphold this that the debt crisis is coming now or soon. if you go through what he said further, he said it is looming and coming. this is always the thing, with this spring of deficit hawk, there's always in some future the great crisis we need to fear. those that have said have been wrong, two years ago was supposed to be then. at least they're backing off it being so soon. that's eroding the underlying nature of the argument. >> does this help explain why they're doing nothing, the debt isn't a big deal? >> they a sequester, what more do they need. >
? and also the idea that the federal government can't have a deficit, it's crazy. the republicans have somehow adopted this and sold the american people that the most important thing facing this congress and country is to balance the federal budget. no, it's not. how about creating jobs? how about repairing our infrastructure? repairing our bridges and our highways and sewage treatment plans and all of that? how about investing in new energy projects and new medical advances and a cure for cancer? that's a hell of a lot more important than balancing the freakin' budget. that's the first thing wrong with this ryan budget. the second thing is that the ryan budget destroys medicare. still does. we talked about it this is the same damn budget that they passed two years ago, that they passed last year. it would shut down medicare for anybody who is not already in it, cut benefits for those who are, but shut down medicare for anybody who is not in it and replace it with a voucher. a voucher that would not even come close to buying you health care from a private insuran

we as a party, if we want to grow and we want to win and govern again, at the presidential level, we've got to look at times and said, hey, you may not agree eye us on every single issue that the party has put out there, but we're willing to include you in the party as long as you understand. >> doesn't this conflict with some of the messaging we've heard from cpac over the weekend, though? >> there are personal some speakers at cpac who don't believe otherwise. i would argue while cpac does represent a good amount of people that believe in the republican party. cpac is not the republican party and the republican party is not cpac. so i appreciate all the work they do out there. but that's one part of the party. i's a great part of the party. but, you know, we're not synonymous. >> and as the first word of the report says, the gop is a tale of two parties. we'll see how that goes. sean spicer, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> let's bring back lynn as well as jackie. first you, lynn, what's your thought in the way sean spicer described what this meant and where the party needs to
to be chained to government dependency. all the guys have to find that. it makes them sick. >> eric: can i throw something in here? one of the issues here with dr. carson for me, as a conservative, he is not as conservative as the real conservatives out there would like him to be. issues on the second amendment will be problem mattic if he wants to run for president. end of story. his immigration issues may be a problem as well. he has a tough road. the big question, can the g.o.p. win from the moderate part of the spectrum? >> bob: let me make a point about rand paul. he is now going to iowa, always the first step. he has also hired some very good and interesting consultants, presidential level consultants. it take it to me he is getting serious. >> dana: oh, no. not consultants! i thought they were you know what under the sun. >> bob: some of them are good. this is interesting to me. >> eric: listen to dr. carson at cpac. talk about racism and race. a very refreshing take on this. listen. >> you know, reporter once asked me why i didn't talk a lot about race. i said because i'm a neurosurgeon.
, america set out to topple saddam hussein's regime. it took less than three weeks to destroy his government, but the war that everyone thought would be short dragged on for nine bloody years. the war in iraq may have officially ended, but the costs and blood and treasure continue to haunt us. the iraq war cost more than $3 trillion. it killed nearly 4500 americans and wounded 32,000 others. it killed an estimated 114,000 iraqis. and while the death toll is a stark reminder of the cost of war, the lesson to be drawn from the last ten years remains unclear even today. joining us from new york is msnbc's rachel maddow. her book, "drift" is out now in paperback. rachel, thank you so much for joining us on such an important topic. >> sure, thanks for having me. >> you've done some great writing about war and what war means to america. i guess in thinking about all that and the writing that you've done and of course the documentary, do you think there is a lesson to be taken away from the iraq war? and if so, what is it? >> you know when we did "hubris" one of the things i thought was important t

"anderson cooper 360" starts right now. >>> erin, thanks. good evening, everyone. authorities had three and a half years to investigate this man's killing. best we can tell, they didn't even try. now people where he lived in mississippi and died want to know why didn't his life count. one of whom, the victim's mother, joins us tonight. >>> yet another stunning claim in the jodi arias trial about why she's so fuzzy on the details. can stabbing, shooting and slashing somebody just slip your mind? we'll ask an expert. >>> we begin with breaking news you'll only see here. a mother speaking out tonight about the rape of her 16-year-old daughter and the verdict against the two young me
